In order to improve high-speed performance, a newly developed OHV 1,000cc engine was adopted. The designers were thinking of future export potential when they also added such features as curved glass for the windshield. It was launched in November 1957. In August-September of the following year at the Around Australia rally (16,000km in 19 days), it teamed up with another 210 ("Sakura") and came first in Class A (25th overall).
